This is going to be a very short and sweet ORT report mainly because I haven't done that much stitching over the last week or so. Sort of lost my stitchy bug there for a bit after finishing my MS cats. But the little stitchy bug has come back just in time for this weekend!
And why is that good news.... well, because it is International Hermit and Stitch Weekend or IHSW for short! I know that it is a bit late to remind you all about it today when the weekend is nearly over but better late than never. Hopefully tomorrow I will get the chance to post a pic of what I have been stitching this weekend. If you want to have a squizz at who signed up this month Joyce has a post where we have all signed on the dotted line!
So what have I been doing this weekend? I kitted up a new project on Friday afternoon and managed to get in a couple of stitches before going out to meet Hubby at Handcrafters House in Midland for the Jinny Beyer Colour Workshop. I did manage to get a couple of hours stitching in yesterday afternoon, but last night wasn't as successful - what with watching the first 2 episodes of series 2 of "The Game of Thrones" and a certain kitty who shall remain nameless deciding that mum's stitching was the perfect spot for a cuddle - not a lot of stitching was achieved! Never mind there is still a whole Sunday afternoon to go yet :o)
Now for the all important TUSAL photo for this month. As I mentioned Hubby and I went to a workshop on Friday night. Jinny Beyer is currently here in Perth doing a couple of workshops and the one we specifically wanted to go to was her Colour Workshop. We both enjoyed the evening and learnt heaps... I even had a light bulb moment about colour. Who said you can't put one colour with another? We bought the portable colour palette that Jinny has put together and this magic little tool is just amazing for working out how colours can go together. So why am I rambling on about this... well this month's photo is taken with the colour palette!

Sorry, this is probably not the best TUSAL photo... Do you ever get those days when you know what you want to do but just can't get it to work the way you want to??
Well dear readers, that's it for another ORT report. See you all again same time next month.... Pop on over to Daffycat's blog if you are interested in signing up or keeping in touch with what is going on with the 2012 TUSAL.
